UEFA announced on Friday (7) that nine of the 12 clubs had announced the participation of the new “Superliga”, restored “in the spirit of reconciliation and for European football”.
According to the official note, Arsenal, Atlético de Madrid, Chelsea, Internazionale, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Milan and Tottenham acknowledged that the idea of forming a new league was “a mistake” and apologized to fans. National Union, National League, European Club and UEFA “.
“I said at the UEFA Congress that it takes a strong organization to make mistakes, especially in these days of decisions on social media. These clubs have done just that. In their willingness to accept their commitments and fix the disruptions . The reason is, UEFA wants to leave it behind and move forward in a positive spirit, “said the organization’s president, Alexander Seferin.
As a result, according to the Ufa leader, the potential penalties that apply to clubs “will all be reestablished in youth and youth football in communities across Europe, including the United Kingdom”.
However, Juventus, Real Madrid and Barcelona have not taken the same steps and are still subject to more severe penalties from the unit – even banning competitions. For Sefferin, the three clubs could be the target of “any action that qualifies as good” and they “still refuse to abandon the Super League”.
“The matter will be immediately referred to the disciplinary bodies,” he said.
The creation of the “Superliga” group lasted three days after the announcement, with nine clubs announcing their departure. The idea was to create matches over the weekend with the guaranteed presence of the founders, with the aim of taking possession of the money distributed in European football.
However, since the announcement, the measure has been unanimously rejected by the governments of the clubs (United Kingdom, Italy and Spain), in addition to heavy opposition from fans of the 12 clubs. .
